Just a little bit of apolcalypse, please.

April 7, 2010

Is it wrong to pray for the apocalypse? Just a little one? Just enough to bring our current mess of a society crashing down on to all fours, begging for redemption? Begging to time travel back about 300 years, before humans got this wise idea that we know better than mother nature. That overpopulating certain areas like freakin’ vermin is a good plan. Wiping out millions of acres of beautiful, rich land… for what. Cities? Commerce? Industrialism, banking, debt, mortgages, billions and trillions of dollars, technology, lifestyles of convenience, fashion.

Jobs. 9 to 5 jobs. Sitting, typing. All day, all day while the sun is out. While we’re supposed to be outside, soaking it up, being one with the earth, not totally against it. Growing our food, being responsible for ourselves and our livelihood, putting all of our eggs in one basket – literally, not in the economical sense.

What happened to homesteading? Where did we go so wrong?

So, today I pray for a little apocalypse. One that sends our way of life out the window, and forces mankind to live the way that God and nature intended.

:end rant.

    Deanna, when I get fed up with human crazy cruel idiocy, my usual cry is, “Come the FLOOD!” Surely it’s time for another, right? *grr*
    I think, if there is a god/s, it/they only hold off because there’s still some non-human nature left, which doesn’t deserve to be wiped out just because of our shortsighted greed. When I was in L.A., I figured it was the eucalyptus trees that saved us all. 🙂

    heard an interview on npr the other day with the author of this book –

    definitely makes a strong case for homesteading.

    Not wrong at all. I think that sometimes when I’m fed up with living one on top of another on top of another. I am 30 miles away from Boston and we’re still crammed together. I can’t wait to spread out.
